    That's done. Tell me how it worked.
    It's not the version from edgy, because the one from edgy is specially patch for upstart, so i took the one directly from debian. It seams to works fine.

    To work at his full capability, ntfs-3g need a new fuse module.

    Please, have a look at /usr/share/doc/ntfs-3g/README.Debian to
    know how to do that.

    The script error is a bug fixed in BETA-3.
    Thanks for the report.

    Givre,

    Everything is now working fine. Removing that Selinux was the key. Maybe you should include that in your first post? That may help. Everything is working fine and I'm loving it. Just a quick question. I'll be reinstalling windows and would like to know, do I just remount it or will it be automatically remounted once windows is reinstalled?

    normally you shouldn't have it, so this is not a common problem.

    Device name should not change, so you don't have to care about that.
    However, you have to know that reinstalling windows will remove grub from the MBR, so you'll not be able to boot on ubuntu. To recover it, follow https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Re...tallingWindows

    Re: HOWTO: NTFS with read/write support using ntfs-3g (easy method)

    Once again I managed to get back on this thread just as a new packge was released . Thank you!

    About NTFS Config tool. Is it possible to mount only seletect drives? For example, i have 2 ntfs partitions and 1 ext ntfs drive.

    1. WinXP install
    2. NTFS Storage drive
    3. ext usb

    I want to mount WinXP install as read only and the second/third I want to mount r/w. Or does WinXP need to be set in fstab to use normal ntfs driver? I would be nice to have the option in configurator just in case I need to actuall write to WinXP partition without editing fstab.

    Re: HOWTO: NTFS with read/write support using ntfs-3g (easy method)

    Hi givré,

    I've taken the latest Edgy update of ntfs-3g, the one which changes the binary's permissions, in order for it to be runnable as a normal user. The file is owner by user 'root' and group 'fuse'. However, the postinstall script doesn't add my default user to the 'fuse' group, so I can't even run 'ntfs-3g --version' (I was able to do that before taking the update). I think it would be nice if at least the user(s) in the admin group would be added to the 'fuse' group - I guess most people have only one such user which they use most of the time. This should make things easier for newbies, I guess.

    Otherwise, thanks for the great work.

    Re: HOWTO: NTFS with read/write support using ntfs-3g (easy method)

    Hi guys,

    domino, i don't plan to do that for ntfs-config. The goal is to have the minimum configuration possible. The driver is safe enough to be use for every NTFS device.
    I reserve this kind of feature for an other project i have in mind, a storage device manager that will handle any internal & external device with the help of hal. But i don't think i'll start that any time soon.

    phormion, that's could be an idea. There is no reason why a user from admin should not be in the fuse group. That's right that the ntfs-3g --version problem is a regression. But the aim of this change was to affect mount. You can now mount unprivileged with 'mount' if you use the user option in fstab, to have the same behavior as with any other fs. Mounting with ntfs-3g unprivileged should only be available for fuse user IMO.
    Ok, i'll do that change soon. Thanks.
